Property type condo

About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

There's nothing else like it! Some will say it’s 'awesome', others have called it 'amazing', the Hawaiians would say 'no ka ‘oi' (the best).

Hale No Ka ’Oi is simply the best home away from home you will find on Molokai and perhaps anywhere in the Hawaiian Islands. This is a top floor suite with stunning views over the ocean to the island of Lanai. This is a heavenly, restful retreat for the mind and body. The ideal central location of this condo is convenient, allowing you to avoid those long 45 minute trips to the east or west ends of the island.

Just a short drive from the airport and only minutes into town. The perfect central location on Molokai if you want to enjoy the white sand beaches of the west end or the lush, rugged east end.

An oasis of luxury awaits you with the blending of rich, Brazilian cherry and gleaming marble floors. The bathroom is almost sinful with its oversized, dual head, marble and glass shower and double sinks. The cherry kitchen is exquisite with granite counter tops and premium stainless steel appliances and equipped to please even the most discriminating chef.

Everything inside is absolute 'top notch', including the finest linens, house wares, electronics and European leather furnishings. This is not one of those condos that still sports 20+ year-old rattan furniture.

This is the 'Ultimate In Accommodations'.

The Master bedroom features a Cal King bed with direct access to the bath. The large loft bedroom features a Queen bed, leather loveseat and absolute privacy. The custom engineered, stainless steel, spiral staircase is a work of art by a German craftsman, Josef Linzen. Whether you are two, three or four, you will love this place. The perfect location for your honeymoon, anniversary or for any other excuse you can find!

The property is impeccably maintained and there is a large oceanfront pool. There are BBQ grills for your fresh fish or your favorite steak.

Activities abound on Molokai. This truly is nature’s playground. Kayak miles of pristine reefs, take a guided hike into the tropical beauty of the Halawa valley with its magnificent waterfall or take a journey down to historic Kalaupapa. You can ride horseback through the fields at Molokai Ranch or along miles of nearly deserted white sand beaches. This is the Hawaii of yesterday, a refreshing step back in time.

Best of all, you will meet the people of Molokai and come to understand why it’s called 'The Friendly Isle'. Walk into town on a Saturday and see the vendors with their sidewalk displays of crafts, art, fruits and vegetables.

The weather is perfect. The days are sublime and your mind will relax on island time!

About Chad Slayton

Aloha, I'm Chad Slayton, the owner of Hale No Ka Oi. (Molokai Shores 330). I manage the rentals for several properties in Hawaii, but this one is my personal part-time home.

Chad Slayton purchased this condo in 2005

Why Chad Slayton chose Kaunakakai

Molokai is unlike anywhere else in Hawaii, and owning an ocean front 'piece' of it was a dream come true.

What makes this condo unique

As you can see by the pictures, this unit went through an 'extreme' renovation, and there are no other condos like it in this resort. The view are incredible, and you'll be in one of the most upscale rental homes, the island has to offer.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our visit to Molokai was the most relaxing trip we have ever taken. Your rental was everything you described and when we decide to return...we will definitely be staying at your place. I will also pass along to family and friends your lovely accommodations. The pool was a plus. Loved every minute of our stay.

Great condo on the water

  • 5 of 5

The condo is right on the water looking across the channel to Lanai. It's been updated and is very confortable. It doesn't have air conditioning, but we never needed it. Location on the island is perfect. It will be are first choice when return.

Perfect central location & view!

  • 5 of 5

Chad was very responsive from the beginning. His condo was very clean and had everything we needed for the perfect weekend on Molokai. The direct ocean view was beautiful, we drank our coffee and had our meals on the lanai. We would definitely stay here again on our next visit and refer friends. Thanks Chad.

Great find in Molokai

  • 4 of 5

Nicely renovated condo in Kaunakakai, HI.

The condo is situated just off the main highway about 1-2 miles south of the town of Kaunakakai in a condo complex. This is 3rd floor (top) unit with a loft.

The kitchen/living area is small, but good for two people - four (adults) was a little tight, but doable. Kitchen was well stocked with all the things you would need. We cooked in every night and found it great. The loft is very roomy with a queen bed and lots of fans for the warm/humid nights.

The balcony looks out over the grounds and ocean -beautiful.

The bedroom is at the back of the unit, and you have to go through the bathroom to get there (strange, and the only downside to this unit as far as I am concerned - well....other than the chickens making themselves known just before sunrise every morning:)). There is not a lot of nicely renovated units around, so this is a great find.

Be aware that things are very expensive here. Milk was about $9/gallon. Gas $5.10/gallon. Hawaii is expensive in general due to having to ship most everything in, but Molokai especially.

The people are kind. Some great hiking if it is dry. Beaches on most of the island are not the nicest sand - gravelly. The west end beaches are better sand, but ocean more crashing than waving (this time of year).

We loved our stay at Hale No Ka Oi!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the beautiful finishes of the condo (modernized, sleek, and homey). The view was awesome, so we spent most of our time on the lanai drinking coffee or sipping cocktails! Loved that the binoculars were there to look out at sea! The condo had everything we used for a comfortable visit. It was super clean and the kitchen was well stocked for our cooking adventures. We enjoyed our time at Molokai on the beaches, snorkeling, and hiking to the leper colony. The beach chairs were a plus and made our beach visits comfortable! The locals were extra friendly wherever we went! I definitely would recommend this rental to friends and family!

Perfect place for R & R

  • 5 of 5

When first landing in Molokai I felt like I had stepped back in a good way! What a gorgeous island, with the friendliest people you could ever meet. The Hot Bread is a must to do while here, as well as visiting to the East and West as far as the road takes you. Simply stunning views and several beautiful beaches. We did a Whale watch boat to with Captain Mike which was the most fantastic up close and personal we have ever had. Our condo was above and beyond what we expected, very comfortable beds, gorgeous kitchen with everything a person could need and the view from lanai was stunning with wonderful sunsets.
